Balingen is where aging rockers go to die!

Counting backwards from the years 2005 through 2001, this collection assembles one track each from some of the featured acts on the bill. Though it lacks any form of cohesion, is badly edited, and is poorly sequenced by way of different daytimes, one would assume the compilers to have chosen the best of each. In fact, only a hardcore fan would tolerate Death Angel's seemingly never-ending finale to their set stuck in the middle of the first disc when only a quarter of the entire "show" is over. Continuity lacks.

One could also assume that this DVD set hopes to serve as a) a trailer for those who have never attended, b) a souvenir to those who did, c) just another notch for some of the dinosaurs who played, and d) a token of recognition to the rookies who were thrilled to be invited.

Well, although much of it was utter shite, this set did prove to be suitable as background noise to the cursing that tends to erupt while one assembles another IKEA shelf -- although some of the time it was difficult to stop watching, even if only out of morbid curiosity.

To quote Candlemass: "Bang das fucking Kopf, Mann!"

'nuff said.
